Natural light is the most important thing in photography,” – says photographer Marcin Gregor.

Ararat Magazine presents photographer Marcin Gregor’s exclusive interview and several works of the A&M Gregor Photography.


Marcin Gregor considers photography more as a hobby, although it is profession as well. After shooting a few pictures, he received positive feedback from different photographers, saying that he should do it on daily basis.

“We thought that it‘s worth to try, why not. The point is that photography is a really demanding and expensive profession nowadays. And, in spite of the fact that it was somehow early for us to treat photography as a full time job, we decided to practice, practice and practice on and on, meanwhile to earn money for acquiring better equipment and software for more quality and effect,” – explains M. Gregor.

Like every profession, success in photography also depends on many factors. The interesting thing is that as business photography is easier in the United Kingdom. He believes that there are no limited rules for what you take photos. It can be one good shoot done in Norway, for instance, and ten million shots made in Vietnam. Of course, natural light is essential in the workspace.

“Sometimes is very difficult to catch up picture with good natural light, then in the post-processing there is not much you can do to get the picture perfect. It’s worth bearing in mind that better to take photos in the morning or in the evening, by using natural light if possible. However, if one does not have experience with speedlight, it is better not to use it. Photos are very bad when you do shoots with speedlight straight to the model face,” – underlines photographer.

After all, being a form of business, photography is also an art and immense world for creation. Therefore, mix up your imagination with the photo camera and light that you take with you…
